Is Anything Sacred Anymore?

Rolling Stone just posted an article/interview about My Morning Jacket, their latest album Z, their growing pains, Jim’s voice, etc. Now, it might not deserve it’s own post but I just caught something that needed to be highlighted…

the band does have a cameo in Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown, covering “Free Bird.”

I thought Free Bird was sacred? I mean, I don’t even think Phish should have covered it. Isn’t that why you yell it at concerts? Because, deep down, you KNOW that no one would try to play it.
